this morning, it is the republicans who are getting the blame. joining us now, monica crowley, a fox news contributor. and monica, why do you think that the president wants us to go over the cliff? explain yourself. >> well, first, it looks like the house g.o.p. leadership actually went through the mayan apocalypse, okay? last night. and the president wants to go over the fiscal cliff and always has for two reasons, stuart, number one, he wants all of the rates to go up. not just on the 1 or 2% top earners. he wants everybody's tax rates to go up and even if you were to confiscate a 100% of the assets for the government for a handful of days. stuart: why would he want everybody to pay taxes to pay more. >> he wants revenue to pay for his monstrous, ever-growing, ever-ravenous government, and he knows the money is with the middle class, not 1%. and the top 1% assets to income you fund the government for about 11 days. the real money is with the middle class he needs their rates to go up. the second part of this is, he wants the defense sequester, 500 billion dollars taken out of defense th

not knowing what awaits us, we got a whole new school springing up as represented by my friend doug kass, who writes on real money pro. doug told "the new york times" in a piece that led today's business section that one of the biggest stock market worries, the pain from higher capital gains and dividend taxes would barely have an impact on the market. because so few individuals have taxable accounts. only 14.7% down from 23.9%. doug's calling it a canard. and others say the job cuts for 2013, which seems to be put as many as two million to be made jobless won't be as fast or as high. plus the tax increase can be rolled back. in other words, a deal will eventually be reached, so why bother to sell. okay, so the "it's all overdone" crowd may have a role to play here. particularly because it turned out that when we got a deal to avert the debt ceiling back in the summer of 2011, we caught a gigantic rally. it was a mistake to sell. this is debt ceiling two. let me tell you where i come out. while nothing is irreparable when putting things back together if we go over the cliff, i'm getting worri
